JSPN withdraws support to Dahal-led government

The Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal has withdrawn support extended to the Pushpa Kamal Dahal-led government.

A Central Committee meeting of the party held on Monday decided to withdraw support to the Dahal-led government, leader Deepak Karki informed.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and Population Upendra Yadav and Minister of State for Health and Population Deepak Karki resigned from their post on Monday morning.

Yadav mentioned in his resignation letter that he decided to resign  as he could not work efficiently together with the ruling coalition parties remaining in the government in the developing political situation. 

The Chairman Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal told Annapurna Post, the sister publication of The Annapurna Express, that he resigned as he was not feeling comfortable coordinating with the CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center).

“The major parties of the incumbent government have played a crucial role in splitting the Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal.  I have serious dissatisfaction over the working style of the UML-Maoist Center,” he said.
